Ok so i keep confusing myself on agat and agam
agam- at me/i have
why does the accent change from ainmhí to ainmhithe? is it because the vowel is now followed by a consonant sound? I'm struggling to find a pattern to the plurals.
There are five main declension types in Irish. Ainmhí is of the fourth declension, and fourth declension nouns that end with either -í, -aí, aoi, or -é form their plurals with -the, e.g. ainmhí → ainmhithe, dlí → dlithe, rí → ríthe, etc.
Could the five main declension types be added to the lesson tips and notes?
Only the course creators can answer your question.
I think that's an irregular plural form.
May I know why in the suggestion there is another option where "ainmhithe" is written with a "h" at the beginning? Just curious. ❤
Certain grammatical circumstances cause an H to be prefixed to a noun beginning with a vowel, e.g. na hainmhithe (“the animals”), le hainmhithe (“with animals”), a dhá hainmhithe (“her two animals”).
How is ainmhithe pronounced?
Hint: agam ends with "m" = "me"
